Among the acts heading to Trelawnyd are the multi award-winning Scottish supergroup Mànran, and fellow Scottish three piece Talisk with , who in just five years have stacked up awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including 2018’s Belhaven Bursary for Innovation & 2017’s Folk Band of the Year both at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.

Up and coming fiddle player Ryan Young will share the stage with Jenn Butterworth who have been nominated in Folk band of the Year at the Scottish Trads Awards, while the festival will also welcome to Wales the Canadian Celtic folk four-piece Còig.

A spokesperson for the festival said: "Friday evening is a lively night with three performances in the hall and plenty of room to dance. Saturday is a seated, more chilled affair with plenty of opportunities to have some of our famous homemade foods. There are also acoustic sets at the campsite. We also have a fully stocked bar with plenty of locally brewed ales."
